Building Society move confirmed
Newbury Building Society has this morning confirmed they are leaving their office in Bartholomew Street after 85 years towards the end of this year.
News of the potential move was first revealed earlier this week when it became apparent their existing head office was up for sale.
The Newbury has since issued a statement outlining their plans to relocate along Bartholomew Street to office space at 90 Bartholomew Street occupied most recently by Sovereign Housing Association.
Roland Gardner, Chief Executive said: “We have been at our current site for 85 years and due to the ongoing success and growth of the Society, the need for bigger premises has become an increasingly pressing issue.
"The move is therefore part of our long-term plans for the sustainable growth of the Society and to enable us to better meet the needs of our members.
"The choice of location for our new head office also demonstrates our commitment to continue our long established presence in Newbury, something we are pleased and proud to be doing.”
